Started 7:30 Full Bushel by 9:30. 300' baited with only CN's. 10 Runs, Best run 13. total 74 crabs. 5.5" - 8" most were 6-6.5. Very few females and shorts. Not sure about the depth, my guess 10'-20'. I was the only one crabbing. It was a Tuesday but still nice to have the area to myself. My best day, so far, Kayak Crabbing. Hope this storm doesn't kill the season.

Totally awesome kayak crabbing report!!!!!  This is one of the best crabbing reports of the whole year, right up there with Plankcrawler's report from a few weeks ago about crushing them while crabbing on the Choptank pier! 

I may try the Severn Friday but the track of the storm and timing is still uncertain and I may talk myself out of it--the most recent hurricane forecast from NOAA has a hurricane headed right up the bay this weekend.

But maybe I can get out early before the storm gets too close and do well like you did-its really nice to know if I decide to try it there are still crabs to catch!

Beautiful catch. They look great. Hopefully all is well with the Chesapeake through the possible hurricane. I'd hate to see anything happen to all the beautiful crabs.

Ditto.
What's your motor setup?
Are those some sort of mechanical stick/gears?

How was boat traffic vs your yak?

No Motor. Hobie Mirage Drive. Pedal with your feet and also has a rudder system. I do my best to stay visible, during heavy boat traffic days. This particular day, very little traffic and no one else was crabbing.

HWK

oops my bad. Even more power to you !
I guessed I also cheated
 with my trolling motor on my SOT kayak.
But with topless and/or ring nets.

Is Jonas Green Park a good place to launch?

Since you live near the water, is it over for Seven?
I usually go down to Solomon for my last hurray come late Oct / early Nov. but maybe I can
do a shorter trip this year.
Maybe we can hook up someday.

ravlegend,

I have never launched from Jonas but I see many people do launch kayaks, SUP's, etc.. I just spoke to a commercial guy who caught a couple bushel, today. in this nasty weather, on the Severn, So I guess it's still on..

I will be changing gear to Rockfish next week. Maybe both crab and fish.  Like many of us, I usually don't get to plan ahead, very often. Usually the night before or day of, but always looking for someone to go Yakn with.

Jonas is a great place to launch a yak or car topper. Crabs will start to slow but stripers are there to be had right up to the close of the season.

An awesome kayak crabbing setup you have. And having a day where you are the only one crabbing is just the icing on the crab cake.  Wink

Thanks for sharing.
